Judge Coughenour Not Accepting New Trademark Cases

Western District Judge John Coughenour appears to have stopped taking new trademark cases. New matters assigned to him reportedly are reassigned to other judges with the statement that “Judge Coughenour does not accept trademark cases.” 

Judge Coughenour has been on senior status since July 2006.

He certainly has plenty of experience deciding trademark matters. Among other cases, he presided over Microsoft Corp.’s lengthy infringement dispute with Lindows, Inc., over the latter company’s LINDOWS trademark that ended when the parties settled in 2004.
